Editor's note: This story was updated Aug. 8, 2019 with information about a survey of child care facilities that found recalled sleepers in use at 1 in 10 that participated in the survey.
Aug. 1, 2019 – Two brands of baby sleepers sold at Target, Kmart, Ross, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and other stores are being recalled for safety concerns.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said deaths have been reported in infants using other inclined sleep products.
The recall includes the Eddie Bauer Slumber and Soothe Rock Bassinet (model number BT055CSY) and the Disney Baby Doze and Dream Bassinet (model number BT071DHS). The model numbers are on a label on the bottom side of the fabric of the inclined sleeper pad.
Babies using the sleepers can roll from their back to their stomach or side if they’re not restrained.
The recall involves about 24,000 products, which were sold nationwide from November 2014 to February 2017.
A recent survey of child care facilities by U.S. PIRG and Kids in Danger found that 1 out of 10 of the 376 contacted said they have at least one recalled sleeper in the facility. The groups conducted the survey between June 20 and July 10, 2019 through online and phone outreach.
Anyone with the recalled Eddie Bauer or Disney sleeper should stop using it right away and contact its maker, Dorel Juvenile Group USA, for a $60 voucher.
